"Better three hours too soon, than one minute too late." - William Shakespeare

Already William Shakespeare knew, how important it is to be on time - especially when it comes down to THE PARTY of the year: the GQ MEN OF THE YEAR Awards 2019. 

*this article was created in cooperation with Porsche Design.

This year I was lucky again to be invited by Porsche Design - the official timing partner of the #GQMOTY2019 Awards in Berlin - to celebrate the new 1919 UTC GLOBETIMER and a whole night with the Crème de la Crème of celebrities & world stars in Berlin.

To ensure I do not arrive late, Porsche Design equipped me with the newest 1919 Globetimer UTC wristwatch which does not only show the time in Berlin but also every time in the world, exact to the second.

Porsche Design just made the next statement in the development of travel watches in 2019 and the GQ Awards with people coming from around the world, were the perfect occasion to demonstrate it. With the 1919 Globetimer UTC, Porsche Design once again demonstrates its precise analysis of the functions that leads to the next major development step and to a significant improvement in the operation and readability of travel watches from the past. 

The element of surprise: an innovative time display switch mechanism.
The current time zone can be adjusted in one-hour segments by means of a pusher, without losing the exact time setting [min/sec]. Simple, precise and with automatic adaptation of the date display, the readability of which has also been optimized. Setting the time using the crown is therefore no longer necessary. That makes the 1919 Globetimer UTC the next style-setting design icon from the Porsche Design house which redefines industry standards. Just like the new Werk 04.110 which works inside the innovative timepiece. The caliber was uniquely developed for the special requirements of the Globetimer UTC – and is the second in-house movement in the history of Porsche Design. Of course, precision is the top priority. Therefore, every movement is intensely tested for accuracy by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres, a neutral authority in Switzerland. Because when testing the timepieces, the same applies as for Porsche sports cars: standard is not an option. So the requirements are always set higher than necessary. This enables Porsche Design, like Porsche, to always be one step ahead and lead the industry. On the racetrack, just like in the development of exclusive timepieces.

The GQ Men of the year Awards were an amazing event & party with the most inspiring people from around the world & Porsche Design was the perfect timing partner for this event - even though it is good to forget the time - sometimes! ;)
